    1. This is a beautiful rhythmic work that flows magnificently across the pages telling the story of Albert Freeman, a peace loving man who lost his father to war. Albert becomes a conscientious objector which puts him at odds against his own government who will use any means of coercion and punishment to turn him into a model citizen ready to go to war in the name of his country. "Involution" embraces peace gorgeously and tears away at the war machine which would enslave us all. Wonderful work!


    2. I'm not one for buying books online but after reading reading Sheldon's summary, which was very touching by the way, I just couldn't help buying it. I order paperback instead of kindle as you can't beat feeling the pages of fantastic book. Involution & Evolution is beautifully story, with the author using rhyme to tell this very true to life story. I think a lot of people can relate to the unfortunate powers of war and what it does to a nation. Alfred Freeman, an objector to the WW1, is a ve [...]


    3. I received this book as a Good Reads Giveaway. I didn't know what to expect when I began reading it, but I was instantly hooked once I started. The rhyming makes it quick paced and rhythmic. Its essentially a long poem. I liked this style it's unlike anything I've read before. This book made me question everything I've ever thought about war and it seemed to me like the author took my very thoughts and turned them into a coherent piece of writing. I assume the story is based on fact and therefor [...]


    4. Well written. I am still thinking after reading the book that how people can sacrifice their life and comfortable life to established peach for mankind as well as for the welfare the common people. I really enjoyed so much when I read it. That is a great book for me. I believe that you will be enjoy this book.


    5. Its an intresting book! The rhyming makes it quick paced and rhythmic. I havent read other book in that type, but it was really good. I recommend it to anyone want to read a nice book which critisise the war.


    6. I really wanted to like this book. An updated telling of the story of Jesus or the Buddha is right up my alley, as is an allegory about imperialism. And of course it would be great to finally read a good novel length poem. Good ones are so hard to come by. Not everyone will find fault with this book. But to me the challenge of the form hasn't been met by this version of "Involution". My two biggest complaints are, simply that this poem is too long, with too many unnecessary words intervening bet [...]


    7. Involution got some rhyme, which makes me feel fine; and really hunky-dory.I really like this book, I suggest you take a look; at this super-duper story!It frees Jesus from religion, on the cover is a pigeon; and at times it does get gory.It criticises war, like never before; with a peaceful sort of glory!
